The above-referenced case was referred to Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B). On March 6, 2015, Magistrate Judge Foschio filed a Report and Recommendation (Dkt.

The Court has carefully reviewed the Report and Recommendation, the record in this case, and the pleadings and materials submitted by the parties, and no objections having been timely filed, it is hereby
ORDERED, that pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and for the reasons set forth in Magistrate Judge Foschio’s Report and Recommendation, the defendant’s motion for judgment on the pleadings is denied, the plaintiff’s motion for judgment on the pleadings is denied, and the plaintiff’s alternative request for remand is granted.
The Clerk of Court shall take all steps necessary to close the case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
